Press Release

Congressman Kevin McCarthy released the following statement on the appointment of Porterville native Tom Barcellos to the Farm Service Agency (FSA) State Committee for California:

“Tom is an outstanding choice for the Farm Service Agency State Committee, and his nomination cements the critical role the Central Valley plays in our nation’s agriculture industry.  As a resident of one of the top two ranked agriculture-producing counties in the country, Tom appreciates the vital role of agriculture in the American economy and understands what is needed for our agricultural producers to continue to grow and succeed at home and abroad. Tom has been a consistent advocate for the Central Valley agricultural community, and will bring years of knowledge and experience, including as a former Chairman of Western United Dairymen, a former director with the California Farm Bureau Federation, and a director with the Lower Tule Irrigation District, to the FSA State Committee. I am confident that Tom will excel in his new position, and I am excited to work with him on policies that will help our Central Valley and state agriculture thrive for generations to come.”
